Veteran film critic Stephen Farber’s popular Reel Talk advance screening series has returned to the Royal. Mr. Farber has booked a couple of top-notch comedies and will moderate Q&As with Biosphere director/co-writer Mel Eslyn on June 26 and The Miracle Club director Thaddeus O’Sullivan on July 10.
“Post-apocalyptic survival meets the anxious buddy humor of Humpday in Biosphere, a mysterious and hilarious pic that really can’t be discussed much without saying things a prospective viewer would be better off not hearing.” ~ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
The Miracle Club hasn’t been reviewed yet but the cast is led by Laura Linney, Kathy Bates, Maggie Smith and Stephen Rea, so, safe to say it’s gonna be a hit.
